Hello wonderful friends.... Yes Star Wars is everywhere!! 


Han, jon, Catarina and naturally myself all went to see the premier first screening here.  It was shown at 12.01 am....this morning! It was really exciting... Jon got the tickets ages ago as Han explained that they would of sold out...which they did!! 

It was a major exhibition for all of us to go... Jon and I in wheelchairs, Han limping and poor Catarina pushing.  We made it to the cinema!! I was so uncomfortable sitting anywhere, my back/coccyx was hurting so so much.  I tried sitting in the cinema seats...nope! Worse! Some how I managed to sit, the people behind me may of been a bit peeved I think with all the moving about I was doing! 

The film was AWESOME! That word does not really justify it at all.  It's not like I am a Stars Wars fan.... I just liked the original films, watched them growing up.  So it was only natural for me to go see this new one and see what all the fuss is about! Catarina had not seen any of the other films and sh enjoyed it too! 

In a nutshell....not going to spoil it for anyone... Just want those interested to know it's a brilliant film! From start to finish I loved it! And oh.. I loved chewy, he is so funny! I cannot wait for it to come out on DVD here in England February. So go see it!! Ha ha 

Well unfortunately I am back to spending more and more time in bed's just too painful moving about, my back/coccyx and left knee are worse...and now due to compensating my weight I think it's caused problems with my right knee and hip :(. Jon has been talking to my doctor, and with all my stomach issues too (not held a meal down in over 4 weeks) ... If I deteriorate any more I will have to go into hospital.  Not really what I want but the doctor assured jon if this happens there will be a team of specialists who will look at me and once and for all sort me out...or put me on the path to get sorted out! Yes yes yes!! I know this is ideally what I want and hope for as being in pain 24/7 wears you out. But I am trying to stay out of hospital.. I understand and agree that if I do get worse I will agree to go though.

Enough of this talk!! Just thought you should all if jon or Han posts on here you will all know where I am! 


So what have I been up to? 

Been stitching...a little inbetween massive headaches! 

You all know I love Lynette Anderson designs and have a book of hers "Stitch For Autumn"....  Well felt like stitching, but a little differently...

Here is my stitching journey...

I made a little hoop holder...

That was fun!! And practical! Gosh!! Me practical!! Ha ha 

Something to show you all....

This arrived in the post!! I have no idea what it is! 

But look what it says....


I promised I would not open it, I mean it's not like I have months to wait! Ha ha 

It was totally unexpected and such a wonderful surprise...thank you Sue..aka kiwikid! :) and it's under our Christmas tree now, waiting until 25th when I can open it! So excited!!! 

Here is where I am now... Lol a load of mess on my bed! Yes I am stitching, it's not very taxing on my brain as its 14 count Aida.  You will have to wait and see what I am stitching...not sure it's in focus enough for you to guess?!

Ok.... A little closer.... Anyone know the design? Oh I do! Ha ha I have the chart! Ha ha 

Well it's almost Christmas... I cannot believe how quickly time has passed this year.  Soon it will be 2016...

Christmas Eve is our anniversary, it will be 6 years! That time too has flown by... Jon is my rock and I love him to bits.  The first 6 of many many more years together :)

Ok enough mush! 

Christmas smiles to you all.... :) xxx
Thank you so much for popping in to see me :)


  1. I did not realize I was holding my breath reading the beginning of your post. I was so worried you were going to spoil the movie for me. Jacob is off to see it tonight. We will go as a family in half a week. I CANNOT WAIT. Have had a crush on Han Solo since I was 8!!!!
    I am sorry you are in so much pain and not eating well my friend. Hang in there. I would hate for you to spend Christmas in the hospital.

  2. My dear I hope you feel better soon.
    Sending you my biggest love and hugs x

  3. What a cute finish! Christmas Eve is a romantic day for an anniversary; Happy Anniversary to you and Jon. Hope you feel better soon.

  4. I am glad that you managed to get to see Star Wars. Hubby is taking the Large Boy in the holiday but I will have to wait for the DVD. Is it this February or 2017? Maybe I'll have to make my son go twice...
    The parcel looks very intriguing, watch out for another one!

  5. I agree the movie was so good! I'm glad you were able to get out and see it. It's already available for preorder for the DVD lol. Great job on making a hoop holder that's such a good idea and it turned out lovely :) I hope 2016 goes better for you healthwise and you don't have to go to the hospital. Happy early anniversary and many more to come!


How wonderful that you have popped in to visit me.
Thank You so much for taking time to leave a comment.
